Usage of the jr pass from tokyo-kyoto-tokyo

Hello! Would like to show you out itinerary for our 6days 5nights in Japan this Feb2016. Can you please advice us if purchasing the 7day jr pass is the best option? Here's the itinerary :
Day 1-arrival at Narita Airport (can we use the 7day jr pass from narita airport going to our hotel in tokyo?)

     -explore tokyo

Day 2- explore tokyo
Day 3- from tokyo to kyoto (can we use also the jr pass?)

      -explore kyoto

Day 4-explore kyoto
Day5-from kyoto back to tokyo (jr pass still usable?)
Day6-from tokyo to narita airport

I am really excited about our travel to japan but at the same time I'm really confused about the train transportation :( scared to get lost lol. Thanks and hoping to hear from u soon. God bless!


Hello there,

A JR Pass would work nicely for your itinerary. Using a 7 day JR Pass can net you nice savings here, as the pass is almost the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Kyoto using the Shinkansen. Any additional travel you may do with it basically is what you save. For instance, travel to Narita Airport and within Tokyo on the local JR Network.

Both travel into Tokyo and to Kyoto is covered by the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,.
